Tree snails are hermaphrodites (both male and female) but must cross-copulate. Two dozen eggs are usually laid in the rainy season in soil near a host tree. In the spring, the young crawl to the trees after hatching. They live about six years and spend each winter, during the dry season, hibernating. Butterflies There are almost 200 species of butterflies in Cuba. The most exciting is the green amethyst that was first seen in Bahia Honda in 1979. The insect, about the size of a dime, is bright green with a light purple body and two eye-dots on the back wings.
